    Can-Am car show photos (mostly American cars)

    Hey all,

    As some of you know, I was lucky enough to attend a car show in Wimborne, Dorset on sunday. It contained mostly "American automobiles" and a few european cars, mostly Fast Fords, one or two "old skool" VWs, a few Subarus, two Mazda MX5s and an Austin Mini, oh and a Vauxhall. There was also a Peterbilt truck (rig) there. I heard them saying it was a 16 litre, straight 6 engine. My dad reckons it's one of those extra long distance hauling truck because of how large the sleeper cabin is (photos below). Famous TV cars had their own stand, although only 3 cars. I also saw a Jensen Interceptor (I love those cars). I thing I have noticed among old American cars is that the boot is as large as their bonnets. You can fit a few dead bodies in the back along with their families lols. And leg space is a lot (front and back), especially for the convertibles. Oh and they were quite luxurious considering they are from the 50s/60s/70s. They had electric everything!

    Please mind the change in quality of the photos as my 1st camera died, so had to use the back up camera, and the weather had bi-polar syndrome. One minute it was nice and sunny, then the next it was cloudy and rainy before going back to being warm and sunny ....Without further ado, let the photos roll!

    PS: There's 143 photos, so grab a snack and a drink or two, sit back and enjoy viewing the photos

    Thanks people! I definitely need to the those fin-tail American cars in the future......It's just pure classic with a great monster sound track to it.....they are quite fast too for their size and age, but I'm sure fuel economy is just horrible on those cars lol. Here is a taste of their sound...this is a '59 Cadillac

    LPG and you're get equlivent to 20-30mpg

    I know someone who has 1 60's and 3 70's Rolls Royce's, massive V8's(I think they are American designed), he runs them on LPG and gets about 25"mpg"
